At Home With Miracle Sharri | V24.
MIRACLE. IT FEELS LIKE THERE’S A STORY BEHIND YOUR NAME… CAN YOU SHARE IT WITH US?
A few weeks before I was born, my mom was in a lot of pain but the doctor told her to rest and take it easy, not running any formal tests. When she couldn’t handle it anymore and went into the doctor for another checkup, they found she had a hole in her water bag, so they induced her labor after running more tests to make sure bacteria wasn’t forming. They didn’t expect me to make it because they didn’t know how much damage the hole could have done to the baby. They gave her until 9 am before they were going to perform a caesarean section, but I popped out at 8:53. Her miracle. My mom has always kept me humble by letting me know bringing any life into this world is a miracle, and I couldn’t agree more.
IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK, IT FEELS LIKE YOUR WALLS WOULD SAY A LOT – TELL US ABOUT IT.
Our house belonged to my grandparents (they moved in 1959), and my daughter’s middle name is after my grandmother (Lucille) who passed 9 years ago. When Pedro and I got the opportunity to take over and move in, I’ve always felt a warm spiritedness of being able to raise her in this space. If the walls could talk, they would probably tell stories of the love they’ve seen over the years, the growth and changes, but also the similarities in how life was and is now.
YOU GREW UP IN COMPTON AND LIVE THERE NOW. WHAT DO YOU LOVE THE MOST ABOUT YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD?
What I love most about Compton would be the weather. I also love the people; you can run into some very interesting characters out here.
BOTH YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND ARE ARTISTS AND YOU COLLABORATED ON A PHOTO SERIES CALLED “WOMEN IN COLOR, TELL US ABOUT THAT PROJECT.
A tribute to women, the project Women in Color by Pedro was inspired by our friend and artist Theresa Baxter (@reesabobeesa) and wanting to turn her beautiful pieces into reality. He came up with concepts and I would help bring his ideas to life through styling and set design.
SO, WHAT’S IT LIKE TO HAVE TWO ARTISTS IN A RELATIONSHIP?
Having two artists in a relationship for me feels free to have someone who fully understands me. We both feel everything very heavily, two very passionate people, sometimes we are inspired together and other times we are inspired just watching each other.
HOW OLD IS YOUR DAUGHTER? WHAT IS THE BEST (AND WORST) PART OF PARENTING AT THAT STAGE?
My daughter is 3 years old, and the best part is literally everything. I’m really enjoying watching her grow and experience life. But also, she thinks I’m hilarious and is always impressed by my dance moves. The most challenging part would be just trying to understand her and what she needs.
WOULD YOU SAY YOU FOUND YOUR DREAM JOB, OR ARE YOU STILL CREATING IT?
I’m definitely doing what I love but I feel like I am constantly evolving so I’ve never had a set dream job, I’m constantly recreating my life.
WHAT DOES “PERFECTLY UNDONE” MEAN TO YOU?
Perfectly undone for style means effortless, for home it means life’s been there, and for hair it means wild and free.
